I got the opportunity to give an interview for this magazine, so we shot an editorial to go along with the interview. The theme was "Gold Lust". Photographer of service was Kirsten Thys van den Audenaerde and Maria Kleopatra provided make up and styling on set. We got gold lingerie to shoot from luxe brand La Chaton Bottée and I made a headpiece with golden flowers and branches for Noire.
This is how you end up on the cover when you were only promised an interview:
Somewhere along the shoot, we worked on beauty portraits with gold jewelry. We wanted to do something different with the jewelry, so Maria Kleopatra arranged the jewelry around my face. Because expression is key for head shots, I decided to jokingly stick out my tongue and lick the jewelry so it wouldn't be in front of my eyes anymore. It's not something I really thought about. It just happened. It just happened to look really cool too. Off course, Kirsten - being amazing as she is - delivered this photo perfectly and there it was, our cover photo.
We did quite a lot of sets, I think about 7 or 8. Apparently Kirameki Mag liked them so much that they did not only give us the interview and the cover, but also an 8 pages spread. I am over the moon! ^_^
